National New Media Collection
The digital revolution has radically transformed the ways in which media is produced, delivered and consumed. In the 'Information Age', images, text, audio and video are exchanged as data. The National New Media Collection aims to preserve landmark objects and track the evolution of media since the development of the internet.
Video gaming plays a significant role in contemporary cultural life. To record its continuing development, the museum has formed the National Videogame Archive in close partnership with Nottingham Trent University.
The National New Media Collection is a growing archive. If you have an object you think might be suitable for the Collection, find out how to donate an object to the Museum.
We're only able to display a small portion of our Collections on this website – if you'd like to see more, book one of our Collection Tours or find out how you can Visit the Collections.
